    Kids shoes recomendations

    I bought a pair of Teva Crank C shoes for my 5.5 year old, and just like a pair of Teva sandals we returned several months back, they are way too narrow for his super wide feet. Any suggestions for other shoes with stickier soles that aren't so narrow?

    I was going to suggest the Teva Links for kids, but obviously the Tevas are no good for your son. My son has been using hiking shoes for mountain biking for the last few years (he's 9 now) and they provide good grip on the pedals and they are waterproof. The sole on hiking shoes are very similar to mountain bike shoes (flats). If you read the Five Ten website, they use their Stealth sole on both mountain bike and hiking shoes. My son has used Salomons and Keens so far (Merrells are narrow). If your son has a wide foot, the keens are by far the widest and have plenty of room.

    Another option is to get some Vans. The are cheap and I believe they have some room in the toe box. Good luck.
